Photographer's Note

My entry to the scavenger hunt "doors".

It's a Victorian style door on Commonwealth Avenue in the center of Boston. This building is totally surrounded by those leaves. I've posted the entire building before on one my first photos on TE Urban Jungle and I went back there to have a better detailed shot of this door for the "door" hunt.

I've found this door so beautiful that I've searched the net for more information about it and found this on this website:

"Commonwealth Avenue boulevard is the main thoroughfare in the Boston's Back Bay, the preeminent Victorian residential neighborhood in America and a testimony to a bygone Victorian era in which public open space was conceived as a decorative boulevard that enhanced the townhouses of the gentry, and served as a promenade for fine ladies and gentlemen. Formal in design, Commonwealth Avenue today serves as a protected area to enjoy a canopy of trees in the city, or walk your dog."

Tech details: Was a cloudy day so I've shot the photo with the white balance option "cloudy" and made some minor changes on the levels, saturation and sharpened in Photoshop.
